The Tick’s Saliva

Dec 23, 2020 | Blog | 0 comments

Have you ever looked closely at a tick?

If you live in the country you’ve probably had your fill of these little bloodsuckers. Yet, ticks are master chemists! The tick’s saliva produces an anesthetic which allows the tick to attach itself to our skin and sip our blood without us noticing it, unlike a mosquito or bee sting which is definitely felt!

Once attached, the tick performs another marvel of chemistry – it turns off our blood’s clotting mechanism, thereby having a continual flow of its delicious meal. Could random natural processes have produced these complex chemical reactions? Not a chance!

Our Master Designer created the tick’s amazing saliva!
